Do you find yourself looking in the mirror and seeing your mother’s face, or your father’s? Are you tired of being told you look like you haven’t had enough rest or you look angry or sad, especially when you’re not? Fortunately, there’s a simple way to improve wrinkling and sagging and take years off your face. Quick injections of dermal fillers help our Oakville, Burlington and Hamilton, Ontario, patients look as good as they feel.
At Cosmedica, Dr. Otto Weiglein and the rest of our team know that how you think about yourself will change the way you feel about yourself. We partner with you to help you look your best, so you can feel your best and give your best! We believe subtle changes make a big difference, and we customize each person’s injectable plan during a consultation to produce the best possible results in each unique case.
Good Candidates for Dermal Fillers
Women and men who are starting to see the early signs of aging come to Cosmedica for nonsurgical treatments, including strategically placed fillers. There are more fillers available than ever, and the expertise of Dr. Weiglein and his team of nurses enables them to recommend the best product for your specific needs. Patients who can benefit the most from fillers have skin that retains most of its elasticity, but who are concerned about wrinkles and lines caused by age-related volume loss.
How Dermal Fillers Work
Starting in our 30s, we begin to lose volume in our mid-faces, and expression lines and wrinkles increase and deepen. Our skin begins to descend and thin due to collagen loss, and we develop visible sagging in our jawline. This loss of volume makes us look tired. Repeated muscular contractions around the mouth and brows create deep lines, which sometimes can make us look angry. Dermal fillers are formulated specifically to relieve these concerns by restoring lost volume and filling wrinkles, making skin look firm, smooth, and youthful.
Because fillers aren’t permanent, Dr. Weiglein recommends establishing a treatment plan that includes regular appointments to maintain the results:
- Initial treatment: Dr. Weiglein and his team of nurses will assess the condition of your skin and listen to your concerns during your first visit to Cosmedica. Based on that consultation, he can create a long-term treatment plan, along with an at-home skin care regimen to extend your results as long as possible.
- Results: Results are noticed immediately. There may be minor swelling and bruising at the injection sites, which will likely completely subside in a few days. Scheduling a follow-up appointment at 2 weeks is important, because it gives Dr. Weiglein and his team of nurses the opportunity to evaluate your results and provide touch-up injections if needed.
- Maintenance treatments: The results of filler injections can last between 3 to 18 months, depending on the location injected and the amount injected. Scheduling maintenance treatments can help you to continue looking naturally rested and youthful without any chance of diminished results.
Fillers are a safe, effective way to reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, sunken cheeks, or a sagging chin. Made of a long-lasting gel, our filler options are all proven to restore definition, balance, and shape.
Your Filler Options
For optimal results, we use a combination of treatments to restore volume loss in your mid-face and smooth away wrinkles and folds. Each person ages differently, so your combination of fillers will be chosen to suit your exact needs and budget. Dr. Weiglein and our injection specialist will suggest one or more of the following products:
- TEOSYAL: This filler that originated in Switzerland is also made of hyaluronic acid. It comes in several different formulas to target specific concerns, such as fine or deep wrinkles or lip volume. TEOSYAL® Redensity [I] is a treatment to enhance your skin’s luminosity and radiance. TEOSYAL injections can keep the skin hydrated and firm for about 18 months, and thereafter, smaller doses are needed to maintain results.
- TEOSYAL RHA: This filler that originated in Switzerland is made using a resilient hyaluronic acid formulation that adapts to dynamic facial movements. What makes this line so unique and different is that it stretches with the skin with movement—allowing for a natural moving face. No more lumps, bumps or frozen artificial looks! It also comes in several different formulas to target specific concerns, such as fine or deep wrinkles or lip volume:
- RHA 1: Used to fill superficial fine lines and wrinkles on the face, including vertical lip lines, forehead wrinkles and neck bands, along with décolleté lines. Now we can treat these area without any concern of lumps or bumps—it vanishes the lines instantaneously!
- RHA 2: Designed to fill moderate dynamic wrinkles. This product is also particularly great in smoothing out smile lines and enhancing the lips due to its natural feeling and stretching properties.
- RHA 3: Treats severe dynamic wrinkles, such as deeper nasolabial folds and shadows around the mouth and chin. It can also do a wonderful job at restoring volume in the cheeks, especially in younger patients that do not need a lot of volume.
- RHA 4: Fills and contours larger areas of the face, such as the cheeks and upper cheeks. It does a fantastic job at lifting and filling while providing a very natural moving and feeling cheek—very important when laughing, smiling and talking! RHA 4 can also be used to correct prominent mouth folds and downward mouth corners. It works well with Ultra Deep to restore a youthful jawline.
- Redensity 2: The first injectable filler designed specifically to treat dark circles and deep hollows under the eyes, Redensity 2 is an excellent nonsurgical alternative to lower eyelid surgery. Treatments produce immediate results and create a more youthful appearance in a way that looks completely natural. We also offer Redensity [I] vitamin injections and Beauty Booster microneedling treatments, which nourish the skin with a proprietary blend of vitamins, nutrients, amino acids, antioxidants, and minerals.
- Ultra Deep: Teosyal Ultra Deep is a thicker, denser filler that restores volume and sculpts more defined features by mimicking bone, especially when used in the chin and along the jawline. It’s also excellent for deeper wrinkles and can last from 12 to 24 months. We encourage patients to schedule treatments every 6 to 9 months to maintain their results. These maintenance procedures involve less filler, leading to less downtime and lower cost per visit.
- Teosyal Pen: Increase your comfort during filler injections with the Teosyal Pen injection system. It is the first motorized, cordless injection system for hyaluronic acid fillers. It can be used in place of syringes for any of the Teosyal fillers used at Cosmedica and actually reduces the amount of filler needed for treatments compared to manual injections.

After a careful consultation, Dr. Weiglein and our nurse injector will make recommendations about which products will work for you. Our treatment plan may also include injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic for fine lines around the eyes and brow, as well as chemical peels or laser treatments the overall quality of your skin, or a MicroPen treatment to renew the skin’s firmness, colour, and texture.
For more extensive rejuvenation, we may also recommend surgical procedures. Our goal is to find the options that work perfectly for your lifestyle.
What to Expect
Our Burlington and Hamilton, Ontario, patients find injections of dermal fillers such as Teosyal to be almost completely painless, because they come pre-mixed with anesthetic. Injections with our qualified specialist, whom we like to call a “nurse artist,” take just a few minutes. Unlike BOTOX Cosmetic, which takes effect over the course of several days, dermal fillers produce immediate results. After a day or 2 of slight redness, swelling, and bruising, you’ll see smoother skin and enhanced facial contours.
To maintain your results for as long as possible, we also recommend a skincare regimen of high concentrations of active ingredients including growth factors, retinol, and specialized enzymes to prevent and repair moderate skin damage at the cellular level.
The result of dermal filler treatments is a rested, healthy-looking face. At Cosmedica, we believe that everyone deserves to rejuvenate their looks and their confidence without fear of feeling vain. When you look good, you feel good, and it’s been proven that younger, more vibrant-looking individuals are perceived more positively in the workplace and in social situations. Once you’ve met with Dr. Weiglein and the rest of his Cosmedica team, you’ll feel excited about trying these safe, innovative products. Once you see your younger face looking back at you in the mirror, you’ll wonder why you waited so long.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much do dermal fillers cost?
The price of dermal fillers depends on where on your face the product is injected, as well as how much of the product is used. Let’s go through our pricing point-by-point.

- Treating the eye area typically costs around $2,000. You can expect results to last 2 years for this area.
- Treating the cheek area typically costs $1,300. You can expect results to last 1-2 years for this area.
- Treating the combined eye and cheek areas costs approximately $3,300, and is recommended for best results as the cheek acts as the foundation to the eye area. You can expect results to last 1-2 years for this area.
- Nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines, are treated for approximately $550. You can expect results to last upwards of a year for this area.
- Treatments of the mouth area can vary widely. A mild to moderate correction costs approximately $2,300, a more severe correction costs approximately $2,950. You can expect results to last upwards of a year for this area. We treat the lips as an add-on for $700, and they usually last 6-12 months.

What if I don’t like the results?
Our most commonly used fillers, such as Teosyal, are made with hyaluronic acid, which can be dissolved with an injectable enzyme called hyaluronidase.
What happens to the filler when it wears off?
The ingredients used in fillers gradually break down and are absorbed by the body. They are filtered out of the body through its normal metabolic processes. Some fillers trigger collagen production, as well, for a longer-lasting effect. In those cases, the new collagen remains even as the filler goes away.
Will washing my face affect the results of a filler injection?
It’s wise to avoid scrubbing or massaging the treatment area the evening after having filler injections. Gently washing your face won’t compromise the results.
Dr. Weiglein and our nurse injector specialist can help you turn back the clock with just a few simple injections. Request a consultation or call Cosmedica at (905) 631-6288 to see how small changes can make a big difference.Back to Top
